A train simulator game on my RCA Maven. I'm never really into mobile gadgets, and I just bought the tablet for comic book reading, but then I tried some Android games, and they're quite fun.

So, anyway, anyone tried Heroes of Might & Magic III HD for Android? Is the savegame files interchangeable with the old PC version of HOMM III? It could be nice to play HOMM on Android during travel, then continuing on PC at home, and vice versa, but it won't be possible if the savegame files aren't interchangeable between the two versions.

If you have the addons for HOMM III on PC, then it most likely won't work since those aren't a part of the HD version. If you have the HD version on pc, it might work.

Made a hardcore survival world on my Minecraft server for my son and I to play on together. Last night we started and got through a few day/night cycles, built a good shelter, found a decent amount of coal, and explored a large nearby island. So far the world has thrown us lots of cows and trees, what appears to be a series of large islands, but we haven't found any sheep yet, so no beds so far. 🙁

The more I learn, the more I realize how much I don't know.

I'm pretty busy in real life right now and don't really have time for games, although I do log in to RuneScape every once in a while.

I noticed Dishonoured in my Steam list the other day and decided to give it a go – I bought it on release and played through the tutorial, but got distracted and forgot all about it. It’s a beautifully crafted game – visually stunning and the gameplay / story are a cut above so far. I’m doing the stealth thing and that mechanic really works well. Add solid voice acting and an atmospheric steam-punk vibe into the mix and you have a pretty impressive package.

It’s a game in which the devs took the time to think about the little things. For example when an NPC sips his beer, the amount of beer in his glass is reduced. And NPC chatter includes comments about your recent exploits – these are the things that bring a virtual world to life for me.

I've been playing Ultima VII: Serpent Isle on my 486DX2-66 for the past few days. Lovely experience, even having to turn on Smartdrive to smooth disk access during scenery changes. Such a rich story, it sucks you right in. I can see myself playing this through over the next couple of months.

I did a marathon for Extra-Life (a charity where you do 24hours of gaming, to get donations to kids hospitals around the world) this weekend, and have started playing The Witness on PC.
So far it's soothing, amazing, and challenging.

Just started X-Wing again. On my vintage gaming hardware, rather than DOSbox. I could never get my USB joystick (Thurstmaster HOTAS) to be properly responsive on DOSbox on my modern system; my ancient joystick-port-native Microsoft Sidewinder is smooth as silk on my W98 machine. (I wish I still had my full expensive Thrustmaster F-22+throttle+rudder setup, but I sold it long ago when I no longer had a machine with PS/2 ports and a game port.)

I recently fired up Skyrim (PC version) for the first time since completing it a couple of years ago and of course there’s been some advances in mods since then, so I started down that slippery slope of tweaking this-and-that. All the while the ‘Special Edition’ was at the back of my mind – was I wasting my time modding the original version? Curiosity killed the cat – 50 bucks later, and no it wasn’t. Apart from the god rays, which I grew out of 10 years ago, it looked pretty much the same as vanilla Skyrim to me. TXAA made things blur annoyingly when you walked, like FO4, and Beth are shooting out patches which is pretty shite, given this is supposed to be the uber polished version.

I played around with it for 30 mins and got myself a refund from Steam, then spent a couple of happy hours fine tuning my mod list to make my own Special Edition – gee whiz I love this game:

Been busy with Homeworld 2 and trying to put all the cool stuff I find on the net into one big mod 😁

I haven't started diving into the inner works of HW2 till last week, so it's all still fresh.

Trying my hand at large maps atm

Age of Mythology EX. Took advantage of the Steam sale to complete the collection.
It wonders me why they left the broken pathfinding in the game. Never played the original, it must be the same or worse. These kinds of issues are so 1999...

Still working my way through Skyrim, re-configuring my mods slightly as I go. I've switched to a couple of different flora mods and have used TESGenLOD to generate much nicer distant terrain. All these mods that people have slaved away on is mind blowing and this game has no business looking so good:

I installed and played about 30 minutes of The Witcher just to check it out. Pretty fun! But I'm in the middle of Ultima VII: Serpent Isle, so back to that. 😀 Currently trying to get out of the Mountains of Freedom...

Once you've seen and enjoyed Ultima VII, you'll never go back. Masterpiece - I can tell you I've passed a month or two on it, playing main storyline, every side quest and every released expansion... I miss that atmosphere, that graphic - my only regret: I've played the Exult version, so I've been able to install Italian translation unofficial patch. Have a fun and epic journey, Avatar.

then lies.
Last is gunfire.
